That’s right, there’s a band out there who thought ‘Poop’ was the best idea for a name. But that’s neither here nor there. It has been reported that last Tuesday, Orange County Police were called to a commercial building after band practice turned nasty and two members wound up in hospital, with one dying of his injuries.
We’ve all been in rehearsal and wanted to hit the drummer over the head to show them how easy it is to keep a beat, but Poop bassist Jacob Leeroy Bach took it to a whole new level after he allegedly beat drummer Steven Pratt to death. The band were previously jamming at the Musick Facility studios in Orange County. Both were admitted to a nearby Hospital. Bach was discharged with only minor injuries and was quickly taken into police custody.
According to the Orange County Weekly, the Fullerton Police Department has stated that Bach has not been charged over the assault as of yet, though he is being held over some unrelated charges. Bail has been set at $20,000 .
I hate to say it but if you name your band ‘Poop’, you’re going to have a bad time. The band now has the difficult task ahead of them of finding a new bassist and drummer who are OK with performing under such a shitty (I had to) band name.
